Description
Safety note: Your bird does not understand how, why or that it's nails have been trimmed. For this reason it is important not to place your bird high on top of the cage or high inside of the cage until they readjust mentally regarding how they grip perches.  It is quite easy for a bird to slip off a favorite perch, especially if that perch is a larger diameter and the nails have been recently trimmed.

Note: Use the sandpaper tubes (shown in the plastic box) for trimming your bird's nails - See video below for suggested use.

It will pay for itself by saving on paying a professional and you'll be able to trim your parrots beak & nails more often making it easier to handle you bird.

Nail growth in birds is inevitable. When a bird's nails are too long your bird can become uncomfortable to hold on your hand.

Nails can reach around a smaller diameter perch and a bird can injure it's own foot. This tool can be used on beaks too.

We like cordless trimmers because of the precision they offer. We would suggest using 2 people for a bird nail or parrot beak trimming session, one of whom would hold the toweled parrot

The hobbyist in your household will find dozens of uses for this versatile tool set when you're done trimming your bird.

The compact size of this amazing Cordless Rotary Nail & Beak Trimmer allows comfortable use and control making it safer than conventional clipping which can lead to blood loss and infection.

Quick change collets firmly secure accessories. Cuts, grinds, sands, drills, sharpens, and polishes with 60 different accessories.

Features include:

  • No Load Speed: 10,000 rpm
  • 60 pc. Accessory kit with sanding, polishing, engraving, drill bits
  • Spindle lock button
  • No batteries required
  • AC charging adapter
  • Cordless operation after charging
  • Carrying case dimensions: 2.25 x 8.75 x 8 inches
  • Rotary tool dimensions: 8 x 1.625 x 1.5 inches
  • 30 day warranty, item must be mailed/shipped back to receive refund or replacement.

Hi Mitch,

How does the "Cordless rotary bird nail and beak trimmer" in your current promo compare with my dremel ( which is not cordless)?

Do I need thus for my birds if I have. A Dremel brand dremel (which I don't use on my birds cuz it scares them, so I take them to the bird groomer.

Would this one you have be less noisy and upsetting to my birds than my Dremel (I have a CAG, a hawkhead, 2 lories, and lovebirds)

Any advice appreciated :)
Judy

The only advantage is no cord - one less thing to worry about. Most birds don't like any of the mechanical or manual trimmers. Having watched dozens - hundreds - of birds groomed both ways we feel a bird properly toweled, is better off with a grinders vs the chance of stumbling upon the quick with a clipper. Convention suggests having "Quick Stop" of corn starch on hand when clipping meaning " anticipate your bird will bleed.

Kids don't like going to the dentist or the the doctor for a shot, birds don't like getting their nails trimmed - you would have thought our Ringneck was getting murdered when we would do his nails. 30 seconds and some scrambled eggs later - it was like it never happened - and we were both better for it.

Thanks for the info, Mitch. The lack of cord may make me less anxious during my lorie's scream-fest.

I'm glad to say that my order has been shipped to me very speedily.  many thanks. 

I do however, have a slight problem with the mini drill/beak trimmer-  the collet which holds the drill bit that I really need does not fit into the body of the drill.  that is the drill bit with the smaller 'rubberised wheel' over which the mini sand belt is placed.  

As luck would have it all the other collets fit fine.  As I don't want to pay shipping sending the whole thing back, could you either arrange for another collet to be sent to me or advise on another option for trimming the birds beak with the mini drill which avoids using this collet.  -will I get on ok with the polishing bits. The bird is a small lovebird.  To confirm the collet which does not fit is the third largest out of the 4.  The collets being the inner brass things under the silver collar(chuck).  

Hi Vicky

I'm sorry for the problems you're having with the Rotary trimmer but we can help you make this work. Please press the shaft restraint button and twist off the aluminium collet retainer. This will reveal the brass collet

Slip the collet out and in the clear plastic box that the drill bits came in you will find three additional collets the largest of which will accommodate the small rubberized wheel (see image). Slip the aluminum retainer .place the new collet into the shaft, onto the threads insert the rubberized and tighten. This will you get you on your way.

First Aid: Practice Makes Perfect When It Comes to Towel Restraint

Mastering the art of safe and non invasive restraint techniques for your companion bird is essential for proper grooming and emergency first aid procedures.
One of the most primary lessons in our Parrot Life Seminars is a demonstration on proper towel restraint for various species of birds. Its also one of the crucial items avian caretakers need to know in the event of an emergency or for grooming and general health assessment. In previous post weve discussed how HARI fledglings are desensitized to towel by teaching them towel cradling.

Fledglings learn very quickly that their towel is OK which makes grooming or emergency handling a less stressful situation. Well, what about parrots that were not towel trainedthat can be challenging for the both the bird and the novice handler. In the same manner we practice fire drills or other emergency procedures at home or at work, we do recommend that you practice towel restraint with birds long before an actual emergency arises. With regular practice on a method that is non invasive, your feathered buddy will soon learn that this is OK too! If you are uncomfortable at first, ask your avian veterinarian or an experienced bird friend to assist.

So lets begin this first lesson in a step by step guideline for Towel Restraint, but first take a moment to understand the cautionary statement about preparing your bird for a towel restraint!
CAUTION: Care must be taken never to apply pressure on the body of the bird. The birds air sacs are found throughout the body. Many handlers fail to realize that compressing the lower body (above the hips) can be suffocating to the bird!
If the bird shows signs of hypoventilation (rapid breathing and signs of overheating), then release the bird immediately to resume at a later time. Overweight and inactive birds have lower tolerance to restraint and stress. The towel will restrict movement of your bird if it is tucked properly.
TIPS: overweight birds or birds unaccustomed to handling can be sprayed with water prior to towel restraint. This cools the body temperature and actually eases the wrap process.

1. Assemble your tools :
Towels: choose a towel material that does not slip or one that does not shred or unthread easily, as nails tend to get caught in the loops and lose threads.
For All Size Birds
Gel Pad ( A Gel-type Seat cushion is perfect as it protects the birds shoulder region when hes lying on his back on the counter)
Spray mist bottle with room temperature water
Large Bird
Advisable for 2 people
2 Large towels (3 X the size of the bird with wings expanded)
Velcro strap for larger bird restraint
Small Bird
2 Hand size towel-
Small Velcro strap

2. Place the Gel Pad Cushion on counter top for padding. You can use a large towel if you dont have a cushion.
3. Place Open Velcro strip on the pad about where the bird middle section would be once hes on the Gel Pad. It doesnt have to be perfectly placed-but rather ready.

Rating trimming my African Gray's beak
 
My Gray always gets these indentations in the sides of his beak and gets my hair stuck in them since he pulls my hair all the time. With this trimmer I got rid of those indentations so the sides of his beak are all smooth now.

Q: What do I use to trim african grey nails? I just received it yesterday. Also it would be helpful to have better instructions. I'm trying to understand what's what with each piece. Thank you

A: Hi Eileen

You'll use the tubular sand paper found in the clear plastic box for trimming the nails - I apologize for the lack of clear instructions
